What is Parent Info?

Parent Info provides high quality information to parents and carers about their children’s wellbeing and resilience.

This service is free and ranges across a wide range of subject matter, from difficult topics about sex, relationships and the internet or body image and peer pressure to broader parenting topics like ‘how much sleep do teenagers need?’

In line with CEOP’s Thinkuknow programme, some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives and the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.

Parent controls booklet

This guide will help you set up parental controls to provide your child with a safer online
environment. Parental controls can help to protect your child from seeing something that
they shouldn’t – although it is important to emphasise that no system is effective all of the
time so it is important to engage with your child and talk to them about their online life
regularly.

Attendance

We realise that for our pupils to achieve a good standard of academic and social success in school they need to attend school on a regular basis.  We also understand that we need to work closely with Goldsmith families and outside support agencies in order to be successful.

Each year we hold stimulating attendance competitions and ensure wonderful prizes for the whole family to enjoy for their efforts in school attendance.
